Hi guys

Is the SS read for sale?

I’m doing a lathe conversion and will have someone
build my cabinet.

They suggested that I hold off a bit until the SS was
ready.

So with my current settings do you think it will it cut a smooth arc useing
2 1/2 profiling ?

I pulled my hair out for a week trying to get the tool offsets to work in Mach and with the help Bryan and
Uday at VM we found a bug in the tool change micro
and fix that and the tool off sets work perfect now.

I all so found a bug in the drill cycles as well and we fixed that to.

I was thinking that this may be another bug.

Bug may be the wrong word to use. it was just a little
code change in the micro.

The problem is that you are using a spiral/helical pocketing routine in visual mill, use a normal area clearing routine and all will be well.

Mach3 dose not support spiral/helical milling in the same way

Graham.


You are saying in the "same way" did you mean at the same time?

After getting the error I go back the machining preferences and make changes until Mach will take the code.
Here are the changes.


Here is the code that I ended up useing for the job.

I cut this code very short so I could post it.

Ok let me start from the beginning and this will make sense.

The other day I need a .500 thick bushing to press in
a pulley that I need to press on a shaft.

The OD was 1.5 and the ID was .625 and I need a .0005
press on the OD and ID, so I drew it up in Autodesk Inventor and generated a tool path with Visualmill and
cut the part using a .375 end mill using hole pocketing
for the ID and 2 ½ profiling for the OD.

After the bushing was cut the ID was smooth and round and dead on the # the OD had a lot of little flats around it.

I called Visualmill and ask them why the OD of my part had all the little flat segments,
they said that I could go in to machining preferences and change the settings and it would cut and arc without the segments.

So I go in and make the changes and yesterday I need to cut another part but I haven’t used VM since I made the changes.

The code that I posted if for 4 hole .4745 ID x .600 deep using hole pocketing with a .375 endmill.

Here’s a screen shot of the setting for the code posted.

Can some one look at this code and tell me
way I’m getting an error please’

The error reads
K word given for arc in XY planeline 10

Here is the code.

The more I dig the more I find, this DIY cnc thing has a LOT to choose from.
I've made my mind up that Gecko is the most popular drive out there so I'll
